Celebrated actress Miriam Margolyes takes listeners on an extraordinary journey through the looking glass. With talent as deep as Lewis Carroll's imagination, Margolyes portrays everything from a bleating sheep shopkeeper to Humpty Dumpty. The familiar characters sound just as they ought to—Alice is innocent and polite, the Red Queen demanding and shrill. Minor characters get the royal treatment as well. Margolyes adds a gruffness to her tone that is appropriate for a talking goat and a haughtiness that captures a pugilistic unicorn. Even the personalities of the talking flowers bloom—the tiger lily sounds bold and cantankerous while the rose is soft-spoken and gentle. This wonderful performance is perfect for a queen—Red or White. M.D. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2012]
